The westernmost island of the Greater Antilles, Cuba is unlike any other location in the world. Only 90 miles off the Florida coast, Cuba is like taking a trip back in time. Starting in the capital of Havana, you will be greeted by fleets of old fashioned cars of vibrant colors speeding down the main road of old town Havana. There is only one word to describe Cuba - vibrant. The people, the buildings, the cars, and the lifestyle are beaming in excitement. Culturally rich, in Cuba, you can sip on chilled crushed mojitos in the like of the famous La Bodeguita Del Medio or walk the curving streets of the capital where you can pick up a street side freshly rolled cigars by the locals. The gastronomy of Cuba fills the air with scents of ropa vieja, beef stews, citrus juices and a strong cafe cubano cuban coffee to end the meal. Perhaps even take a salsa lesson by a local dance instructor and move to the rhythm of the sound of bongos. Make your way back on board to cruise out of the capital and into more lesser known areas.
Beyond the bustling capital of Havana, you will find seducing tropical beaches and secluded coves.The turquoise waters that surround the island are absolutely stunning. Cruising around the perimeter of this island will bring you to it’s most well known beach, Playa Varadero. Beaded in coconut filled palm trees, golden sands and seemingly endless coastlines, this beach is the perfect location. With over 20 marinas and marine centers on the island, Cuba is welcoming to those wanting to explore the island by yacht charters with a range of services.
Cuba is not only a booming island, it is a cultural epicenter of the world. Trinidad and Havana are both UNESCO World Heritage sites, with their seducing vibrancy and strong historical backgrounds. From Cuba’s mountain ranges, to its forest and lush green plains, this island brings you spice and adventure. A cuban adventure is definitely what you make of it - from watching a relaxing sunset on board your luxury charter yacht to dancing the night away to the local sounds in Havana.
